AGLP IESE Program Agenda & Synopsis
    Monday, 15th May 2023

Opening Ceremony & Program Overview

           The Global Economy in Transition: Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire

           Taught by Professor Javier Diaz Gimenez
One year ago, in the Fall of 2021, 2022 was expected to be the year when the global economy would fully recover from Covid 19. In
February 2022, the global economy was shocked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the ensuing sanctions, and the disruption of
global energy and food markets. Then came the lockdowns in many Chinese cities under its strict zero-covid strategy. In this session
we will discuss both the global macroeconomic trends, situation and outlook. We will pay special attention to the pandemic crisis
(immunity, lockdowns, and supply chain disruptions), to the energy crisis (oil, gas, and decarbonization) to the environmental crisis
(extreme weather events, fires and draughts), to the financial crisis (inflation, the cost of living, interest rate hikes, and U.S. dollar
appreciation), to the food crisis, and to the geopolitical crisis (Ukraine, Taiwan, and the rest of the world). The session should be as
interactive as possible. Therefore, you are encouraged to catch up with your reading on the global economy’s situation, outlook, and
trends and to prepare your questions.

           From ESG to Sustainable Leadership: How is the Corporate Sustainability Landscape Changing?
           Taught by Professor Fabrizio Ferraro
Given the important challenges we face in society, there is broad consensus that corporations should play a positive role in society,
but the big challenge is how to do that effectively. The financial sector is at the core of this transformation, and the ESG revolution it
is experiencing will be central in changing how ALL companies integrate sustainability in their strategies and practices. In this
course, we will explain why we are undergoing this transformation, where it is going, and how leaders can deal effectively with it.

    Tuesday, 16th May 2023

            Unpacking Digital Transformation: From Industrial to Network Organization
            Taught by Professor Evgeney Kaganer
Digital transformation has been a topic de jour for more than ten years. By now, companies have plenty of war stories to tell but the
need for transformation doesn’t abate. This is because a portfolio of digital pilots does not amount to deep organizational change. In
this session, we will take a broader view of digital transformation and focus on how efficient yet rigid industrial organizations may
evolve into (or become a part of) flexible and scalable ecosystems. Digital technologies, such as AI and blockchain, serve as key
enablers of such transformation. The changes they bring about affect the firm’s business model, organizational model and
technology architecture. The session will provide frameworks and tools to help senior leaders to design and manage the changes in
each of the three layers and, most importantly, ensure strategic alignment across the layers.

            Looking for Agility and Speed

            Taught by Professor Jaume Ribera
Speed and agility are two capabilities that are important in organizations that have to compete in a VUCA world to be able to get a
faster response to changing market conditions, improve the overall organizational efficiency, focus on satisfying the customer
Job-To-Be-Done, etc. However, while it is somewhat easy to start improving speed and doing agile in specific departments, by
focusing on tools, and iterative improvement practices, the big challenge is to become agile and speedy, in an integrative way
throughout the firm. . This involve awareness, consciousness, and mindset, both at the individual and the organizational levels, and it
affects different dimensions such as strategy, structures, capabilities, knowledge management, leadership, communication, etc. In
this course we will present a framework for speed and agility development, and discuss what diferent companies have learned in
their journeys to build an agile organization.

   Experiential Learning Football Club Barcelona Experience: High Performance Teams - by Professor Miquel Llado

   The Barça Experience is a unique event. It gives participants the opportunity to learn about the School of Talent of FC Barcelona (La
   Masia) through the in-class discussion of the IESE Business Case “FC Barcelona & La Masia: Developing World Class Talent”, the “FC
   Barcelona methodology” and a “training session on the pitch”, for participants to feel the “front line”. Good reflections on how
   High-Performance teams are built, developed, and managed. Very good learnings totally applicable to the business world. In business
   we play our roles as players, captains, coaches, as football players do. We experience recruiting and developing processes very often,
   so participants do get good tips on how it’s done in the FC Barcelona, for them to make the translation to their company. First team
   Former players of FC Barcelona will also join to deliver the content of this course.

            Corporate Venturing

            Taught by Professor Julia Prats
Large corporations face the dramatic challenge of becoming flexible and adopt new technologies to remain competitive. Although many
firms have well organized R&D departments, the pace and the scope are not in sync with today’s needs. Competitive firms explore outside
looking for ideas, technologies and solutions that are not able to develop inside. The Corporate Venturing sessions allows for understanding
what it takes to structure and organize an open innovation activity, including a deep dive on the different Corporate Venturing mechanisms,
i.e. a venture client, a venture builder, an accelerator, etc.

            Positive Leadership

            Taught by Professor Anneloes Raes
With millions of workers around the world resigning from their jobs in the wake of the pandemic, many top leadership teams are asking
themselves what they can do to retain talent. In the sessions on positive leadership, we discuss how leaders through their own behavior can
set a positive ‘tone at the top’, so that they stimulate and maintain a positive climate and generate employee commitment. In session 1, we
will discuss in an interactive format the internal dynamics of top teams, as they affect strategic decisions and shape the organizational
climate. In session 2, we will use a workshop format to analyze leaders’ personal strengths, and discuss how they are relevant in today’s
dynamic environment.

   Experiential Learning La Sagrada Familia - Innovative Spirit: Lessons in Leadership from the Sagrada Familia

   Nearly 140 years and counting in the making, the Sagrada Familia demonstrates how visionary leadership can prioritize the truly
   important over the distracting noise of short-term results and ego. By taking a cue from Gaudí and seeking the extraordinary in the
   ordinary, executives may be inspired in ways they never thought possible before. Gaudí was a man with a vision, and one who
   understood that the vision must be clearly communicated to be effective. The course includes a case study presentation on Gaudí, a
   tour of the Sagrada Familia, followed by class discussion.

   Gala Dinner and Certificate Ceremony

    Friday, 19th May 2023

            Crisis Management and Communication

            Taught by Professor Yago de la Cierva
Companies, even excellent companies, can find themselves embroiled in crises that threaten their economic results, their reputation with
priority stakeholders, and even their survival. The urgency of the situation and the emotional tensions make the right decisions is much more
difficult. Solving serious crises always involves measures of two kinds: action that focuses on the effects of the crisis on people and things,
as well as addressing the causes of the issue; and the communication of these actions to ensure that stakeholders understand what is being
done and collaborate in overcoming the problem. Each crisis is like a fingerprint: unique, and demands tailor-made decisions. However, the
company’s stakeholders (victims, employees, customers, public authorities, shareholders, the media, activist groups) always react
consistently in the same way. This course anticipates those expectations and demands and provides a six-steps method to respond quicky,
consistently and ethically to emergencies and crises.
